Almond Butter Energy Bites

Almond Butter Energy Bites

I’ve been on an extremely long break from this blog, but since I’m snowed in and getting cabin fever I might as well post a recipe. I never thought after moving to Atlanta that we would get snow and my kids would have an average […]

Anisette Cookies

Anisette Cookies

Anisette cookies are my second and final Christmas cookie for the blog. It’s mid-December, and I’m burned out. I’m burned out with this blog, and with life in general. You know it’s bad when your Google calendar is so full that you haven’t had a […]

Italian Chocolate Christmas Cookies

Italian Chocolate Christmas Cookies

It’s December. Which means it’s cookie baking season. I don’t usually crave sweets much, so when I do eat Christmas cookies, I go for more traditional ones, such as Italian Christmas cookies. Growing up, our neighbors were Italian (like, actually from Italy), and each Christmas […]

Jalapeño Poppers

Jalapeño Poppers

I saw this recipe for jalapeño poppers years ago and wanted to try my hand at it. It can be as simple as using three ingredients: jalapeños, cream cheese and bacon. Or you can jazz it up a bit with other add ins to make […]

Naw Mi Fan in a Rice Cooker

Naw Mi Fan in a Rice Cooker

I have used this recipe more times than my mother’s recipe. Such a statement should never be uttered (blasphemy!) but I must. This recipe requires 8 hours of soaking the rice before simply throwing everything together and pressing a button on a rice cooker. My […]
